Bridging doesn't do that. You need bonding for this.


That may be true, I am no expert at all, but I can find you literally 
hundreds of how-tos out there all specifically adding two or more ethx 
interfaces to the same bridge. hundreds.
So, I thought it would be safe to do.
But obviously it is dangerous or I messed up real well..lol


google search with a lot of the how-tos i was following.
